Grace was that welcoming aunt who always invited you to visit and was always happy to share her home. I know her house on Red River was a frequent stop for our family and many times the whole crew of boys slept on the living and dining room floors because our parent got the spare bedroom and the girls got the floor of her "office" or the couch. She was at every family reunion on both the Rossi-Pozzi (Rigamonti) side and the Grunewald-Haller (Arnold) side of her parent's families, many of which she had a hand in organizing. Some were at a local church hall or a community center; others at outdoor parks. I recall a few times she would invite some of the older kids to accompany her to the nearby bowling alley on her league night. She was always gracious and considerate, a gentle soul. I will miss her, but am glad she is now back at home with our Good Lord and his dear Mother Mary whom she loved so much. Pray for us all Grace!

Grace was an inspiration to me and to many. She is now singing in heaven’s choir.
